Hello Scrappers!
As promised, here are my French Country Beauties! (Please forgive the picture positions.  For the life of me, I could not get these things to line up right.)

Aren't they beautiful!

Thanks for the tag fellow scrappers!  And thanks to Laura for all the hard work!

LD French Tag Swap

Hello Scrappers!

My LD French tags are here!  I will get some pictures up tomorrow.  Some of the names on both sets have only Ustream names.  I would love to thank each of you.  So if you look in, please send me an email if I don't catch you on Ustream.  I have a hard time watching Laura and reading the chat, so I tend to not sign in and just watch Laura.  What can I say, mutiltasking like that is not my best trait....

Both the French and Grunge tags turned out to be awesome!  You guys did a great job!

I AmOne Super Happy Camper Tonight!

Feeling Blue-So Sharing to Cheer Myself Up

Hello Scrappers,

I am feeling a little down today.  So...I thought why not share what I made and gave to my Mom on Mother's Day.  I would love to take credit for the idea, but I can't.  This is my version of Laura Dennison's Vintage Suitcase Mini.  I was too lazy to make the suitcase, so I found a smaller suitcase in a second hand store for less than $10.  It had some damage to it, but I just felt that added to the "Vintage" feel.  The paper cover on the inside was coming apart, so I did repaper the inside (which ended up being more of a chore than I thought it would be).  I then made a "larger" mini (Basic Grey Papers and some odds and ends from other lines) for mom's Ireland trip.

This is an envelope mini with one of Laura's "Stack The Deck" binding methods.

Inside of Suitcase:

As my dad pointed out to me when I was so excitedly showing this to him, "You got the pocket on crooked."...Thanks dad for that encouragement.  The inside top is taken straight from Laura's.  I cannot take credit for it at all.  Well, I did the cutting and staining...  ;)  If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

LD Tag Swap Grunge is in!

Hello Scrappers!

A couple of months ago I joined a tag swap.  I did two groups.  One had a French County Theme and the other was a Grunge Theme.  The hostess was wonderful to put up with what she did (there were a lot of tags)!  I wanted to take a moment and show off the ones I got back.  I think I was dumb and forgot to take pictures of mine.  I can't find any on my camera.  And I have to admit.  I am in an organizing mode right now so finding the ones I kept for myself...Well you can imagine.

Anyways, to the good stuff.  Sorry in advance for quality of pics.  I will try to get better ones with sunlight this weekend.  Here are my pretties!!!
